Coming from a health and human service background, redoing my resume to fit the technical world seemed daunting.

Writing a resume in general can be a tedious and frustrating task. Making sure you have all of the necessary information, enough detail, but keeping it to one page is quite the balancing act! I am lucky enough to have a career coach at Flatiron to look over my resume and send me helpful resources.

Though the technical resume is much different from what I am used to, I am thankful for the resources Flatiron offers.

When writing RESTful routes, you should feel just that, restful.

RESTful routes provide a convention for developers. It is essentially the design pattern for programmers to manipulate data and make it nicer for users to interact with.

RESTful routes provide the mapping between the get, post, delete, and patch verbs…

I quickly realized as I dove into my first project that setting up my folders and files was going to be half the battle. Sure, I know how to create and save new folders/files in Visual Studio Code but do I fully understand what those files are doing and how…

Hi, I’m Amelia!
